Spicy tomato and apple relish

Excess crops of tomatoes and the apples from the new Baby Blush tree have inspired me to have a go at making tomato relish. Found a great recipe for spicy apple & tomato relish on All Recipes.com and it has turned out really yum. Especially good if you are partial to a bit of warmth in your dishes :)

Here is the recipes if you want to give it a go

1 kg apples, peeled and sliced

1 kg tomatoes, peeled & sliced

2 large onions, chopped

85g sultanas

1 tablespoon yellow mustard seeds

140g sugar

450ml water

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

4 teaspoons salt

2 1/2 dessertspoons curry powder

1 clove garlic, minced

560ml malt vinegar

Place apples and water in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and cook 25 minutes, or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Add more water as necessary to keep the apples simmering.

Wrap mustard seeds in muslin or cheesecloth and place with apples.

Add onion, tomatoes, curry powder, cayenne pepper, salt, sugar, sultanas, garlic and vinegar in with the apples. Stir until sugar has dissolved.

Bring the mixture to the boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 3 hours, stirring occasionally, until a thick chutney remains.

Remove and discard wrapped mustard seed. Seal chutney in sterile containers until serving. This filled 1&1/2 500ml jars.
